Until a humaniform robot – one of the most sophisticated manifestations of artificial intelligence ever created – is ‘murdered’.Only one man of the Planet Aurora had the means, the motive and the opportunity to commit the crime: he hires interplanetary detective Elijah Baley to prove that he did not do it. Armed only with his own instincts, his sometimes quirky logic and immutable Three Laws of Robotics, Baley sets out to the solve the case

    The colours on the print in my book are truly wonderful and the robot looks like an awesomely powerful giant. I also love “starship”, “the gods themselves” and “The stars like dust” and “the sentinel” which I will also add in the A2 size later on. I was drawn to the sci fi books when I was 15 years old by the sheer power of the book covers which were much better than the stories within. It is fantastic to see these images in all their glory some 35 years later. They have lost nothing over the years, the imagination behind them is as wonderful now as it was then. The images just as striking, as breathtaking and as stirring to ones imagination as to that 15 year old schoolboy.

    Many thanks for my Robots of Dawn poster – I love it! Of course the poster itself is fantastic but I’m also very happy with Chris’ sketch – it turns the whole thing into something more special. I think this is definitely worth purchasing for fans of Chris’ art.
